Diablo 3 Patch 2.4.1 New Virtual Pets

patch241-portrait-whimsyshireEarlier this week we posted a bunch of infos and pics of new cosmetic items and wings players have found in Patch 2.4.1 on the PTR. Fan reaction has been mixed, with some liking the new visuals and others angrily stomping their pitchforks and rabblerabbling about how Diablo 2 had no transmog and dagnabit they liked it that way. Personally I’ve got a foot in each camp, and the more time I spend in MP games with players wearing glowing wings, the more I remember that I prefer to play solo.

That said, I was a huge fan of the gold pickup pets we had early in the D3v beta, and I think the gold pickup feature added to virtual pets in Patch 2.4.0 is one of the best Quality of Life additions since the game launched. So while I don’t care much about new transmogs and think the wings are mostly annoying, I can’t be so negative about the twenty new heel-trotters, not all of which have yet been found. Diablo 3 Patch 2.4.1 New Virtual Pets!

Credit again to Lumamaster’s thread on the PTR forum where he’s been compiling and updating the new transmogs, pets, wings, and other cosmetic treats coming in the next patch. There’s a lot more there than I quoted here, so check it out. Plus a Blue stopped by today test the waters and give out a disclaimer:

It’s great to see all this excitement over these new items. We’re very interested in hearing your feedback!

Just want to poke my head in here and add in as a reminder that, as always, PTR is subject to change. We’re testing out a few things, including types of cosmetics and how they can be acquired. Some of these items may go live, and some of them might not, and we may change how or where you find some of them. We appreciate those of you who are taking the time to track these things down and give them a try!

What do you guys think of the new stuffs? Anyone want to Grinch about the virtual pets? Click through for a full list of them, many of which have not yet been spotted or cataloged.

Most of these virtual pets have been found via drops from the new Treasure Goblin, the DiabloWikiMenagerist Goblin. The new transmogs and wings are *not* dropped by goblins, not even the green Odious Collector. They all come from one specific unique enemy, such as Maghda, Uber Maghda, a Flying demon, etc. Details in the OP thread.

  1. Not a fan of pets or wings or any other fluff also, though I do like the gold pick up too.

    I’d love to see an inadvisable cape transmog for a pet – out of sight yet still running around picking up gold.

    – Can we add the ability to snatch up crafting material also – or am I now dreaming?

  2. New pets are always nice, though I don’t see much I like more than my ugly blue man-faced dog. Maybe the Mimic. Every pair of wings they’ve made look gaudy.

  3. Oh look, they are actually trying to… monetize the game so that… They can keep developing… What a crazy idea, eh? Wouldn't want them to do that…

  4. Maybe they’ve given up on D3 and throw it all in as last step before moving on to the next game.

  5. wow. They’re actually paying people AT THEIR HEADQUARTERS to produce shit like this. What about more legendaries, a new class, an expansion? This is a lot of effort and work for free shit that literally nobody asked for.

  6. I'm pretty fine with transmogs and wings and pets or whatever else, though I get far more pleasure out of watching people stamp around and whine over them than I ever would in-game. Main value of the site these days, actually.
